Men's Groove 1.0
Resilient as you are.
The Groove 1.0 is ready to stand up to the rigors of everyday training, while also being right at home toeing the start line of any event. The Groove 1.0 utilizes Ultra-light 44Cell HBF-Limestone neoprene™ through the body and legs for maximum buoyancy, while remaining light for the entire duration of your swim. The arms are constructed of 1.5mm DuraStretch neoprene to provide unrestricted flexibility that deboer is known for. When you are putting in the work, day-in and day-out, you need your equipment to be as resilient as you are.

Made from our HBF-Limestone neoprene (Highly Buoyant, Flexible, and lightweight 44Cell neoprene). We conducted studies to understand how adding buoyancy can affect swim position. Based on these studies, we positioned the panels to create maximum stability, minimize rotation and ensure better balance.
Our unique glide layer coating technology provides exceptionally low water friction and increases hydrodynamics. In addition, it reduces resistance when changing out of your wetsuit, thus, helping to save precious time during your race transition. This coating aids in the reduction of fingernail tears.
The perfectly measured, positioned, finely tuned and extensively tested grooves reduce turbulence and increase the surface area in contact with the water, increasing the efficiency of each stroke and kick and aiding in forward propulsion.
We only use YKK stainless steel zippers which close from bottom to top. This makes opening the wetsuit and getting out much easier and therefore, faster in transition.
Care should be taken when donning the wetsuit to avoid damaging the neoprene skin with fingernails. Always use the pads of your fingers to put on a suit. Do not pinch small folds and pull, make sure to grab large folds of the suit when pulling. Small cuts or tears can be repaired with wetsuit glue.
The exterior surface of your wetsuit is manufactured with a hydrophobic outer skin designed to reduce surface friction (drag.) It is designed to withstand the normal wear and tear during a normal swim session. Care should be taken to avoid contact with sharp rocks or any other sharp objects. Small cuts or tears do not affect wetsuit performance.
Fully unzip the wetsuit before removing one section at a time. Avoid contact with sharp fingernails. Salt and chlorine water can damage the neoprene drying it out and affecting its flexibility. To ensure continued flexibility it is important to soak your wetsuit in lukewarm, fresh water for at least 5 minutes after each use, then thoroughly rinse it with fresh water. To dry, place the wetsuit inside out on a wide hanger in a ventilated place, away from direct sunlight. Maintenance is important, therefore it is recommended to wash your wetsuits with a specialized antibacterial soap every few sessions.
Wetsuit material can develop permanent creases if left folded for an extended period of time. Therefore it is best to store your wetsuit laying flat. Alternatively, hang it on a specially designed wetsuit hanger, thick coat hanger, or as wide and thick a hanger as you can find. Consider the weight of a wet or damp wetsuit and avoid deformation around the shoulders. Some like to roll their wetsuits, but do not fold it under any circumstances.
Zippers are designed to be pulled open and closed in a straight line. Avoid pulling at excessive angles. Ask for assistance to zip and unzip as needed.
